Searchin' Our Hearts!


WOW! Did you see the challenge over at ScrapFIT? OH MY, I LOVE Pat Benatar, and her song Love is A Battlefield. I had to do some thinking to figure this one out! But, I still have some pics of our wedding back in 2009, so I looked at the lyrics and thought that "Searchin' Our Hearts" was PERFECT. We had been together for 11 years before we got married and believe me since this was my 3rd marriage I did a LOT of Searchin'. The prize for this challenge is an AWESOME Collection from Boys Rule Scrapbook Kits!! WOOHOO!

Then I saw the challenge over at Frosted Designs, which is to use only cardstock, NO PATTERN paper. OK I can do that! LOL! Did you see that the prize is TWO Paper Packs from Nikki Sivils!! Get Well and Sugar Cookie! AWESOME!

Well, then I needed a sketch to use, so I found this one over at My Sketch World I did flip it, though:
AND I found a new challenge blog Getting Scrappy Challenges, this week the challenge is ANYTHING goes. They are giving away a Yummy Puns Stamp Set by

Also linking up to Ribbon Carousel for their "Anything Goes" Challenge. They are giving away 2 randomly selected itty bitty stamp sets from Unity Stamp Company! COOL!

AND Finally here is my layout:

I used my NEW Sew Easy Zig-Zag piercer that my WONDERFUL FRIEND, Carol sent to me! LOVE IT!
The white cardstock is from American Crafts, that I sprayed with a light mist of glimmer mist.
The other paper is from my scrap pile.
I cut the zig-zag from Plantin Schoolbook
The Chipboard, buttons, twine and ribbon are all from my stash, USING it up!
